The perfect pushup – although primarily considered a chest developer, its effectiveness as a core and shoulder  stabilizer should not be overlooked.

How to perform the perfect pushup

  • Place your hands and feet on the ground. Hands should be slightly wider than your shoulders in line with your chest.  Near armpit area.
  • Put your toes together, body in a straight line from head to heels
